The stepsisters in North Carolina Dance Theatre’s Cinderella are far from ugly. Instead, their appearance is elegant; they don fancy dresses and don’t appear short or stubby like movies have portrayed them. Still, there’s something fiendish in those big white wigs and hats that protrude like bull horns. Judge for yourself when NCDT artistic director Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux’s choreographed ballet hits the stage of Knight Theater. The three-act production is set to Prokofiev’s score and features costume designs by A. Christina Giannini and set designs from New York City Ballet’s Alain Vaes. The cast of more than 60 dancers stars Anna Gerberich and Sarah Hayes Watson in the alternating role of Cinderella and Pete Leo Walker and Addul Manzano in the alternating role of the Prince. Melissa Anduiza stars as that jovial, magical instigator, the Fairy Godmother. (Anita Overcash)
